    FLOYD: "In 18 Years I Haven't Brought My Best Out Yet"



    FLOYD MAYWEATHER AND MAYWEATHER PROMOTIONS FIGHTERS MEDIA WORKOUT QUOTES
    FLOYD MAYWEATHER, 10-Time World Champion
    "In 18 years I haven't brought my best out yet. Being around the sport for so long, I have a lot of experience. I've boxed my whole life. I've never worked a job.
    "As I get older I want to settle down and be with my family. I've had enough fun.
    "It feels good to be in camp. Everyone on the team is ready to go out and do what we do best.
    "This is a give and take type of sport. Al Haymon has done a good job. Leonard Ellerbe has done a good job. Now it's time for me to go out and do what I do.
    "Maidana deserves the opportunity. He's a champion with an 80 percent knockout ratio. He deserves this fight.
    "Everything isn't about speed. Everything in boxing and life is about timing. I'm a fighter that likes to take my time and be smart. Some fighters like to be reckless. You see what happens when fighters are reckless.
    "Boxing is like chess. Every move has to be thought about before you make it. I like to study my opponents first.
    "I'm not going to do a lot of moving when I get in the ring. I'm coming straight ahead.
    "Everyone is supposed to say they want to fight me. Right now Maidana is the guy that I can't overlook.
    "I love all my fans that support me from Argentina. It's the sport of boxing, so the best have to fight the best."
    LEONARD ELLERBE, CEO of Mayweather Promotions
    "Mayweather is always ready for anyone.
    "Maidana has tremendous punching power and can knock you out at any moment.
    "Maidana should be ready for a toe-to-toe battle.
    "THE MOMENT will be a tremendous fight. A must see event.
    "Floyd has a unique talent that I've never seen before in my life. He's better now than he was 12 years ago.
    "Floyd's preparation elevates him above the rest.
    "J'Leon has matured as a fighter. This is going to be a very tough fight for him."
    "I have every bit of confidence that this is a challenge that J'Leon will prevail in and then be in a great position to challenge for the world title."
    RICHARD SCHAEFER, CEO GOLDEN BOY PROMOTIONS
    "Floyd Mayweather did it again. He picked the most dangerous opponent he could have.
    "It's going to be a thrilling fight. Maidana is ready and he's going to come to try to knock out Mayweather.
    "It is always amazing to be at a Mayweather workout. The turnout is something to see.
    "As a boxing fan, I cannot wait for May 3. THE MOMENT is going to be an unforgettable night of boxing.
    "The whole card from top to bottom is something that no one is going to want to miss and the pay-per-view portion is one of the best, if not the best we have ever put together."
    J'LEON LOVE, Super Middleweight Contender
    "I'm going to bring my A-plus game.
    "I'm not scared of a guy Periban's size.
    "This is graduation season. I'm ready to fight for the world title.
    "I know I'm going to beat Periban. I feel it in my heart."
    RONALD GAVRIL, Undefeated Middleweight Contender
    "My opponent is not a problem for me.
    "I'm preparing for a show. He better be ready.
    "It's an honor to train next to Floyd. I learn from the champion in every way.
    "Keep your eyes on me. The show is going to begin."
    ASHLEY THEOPHANE, Welterweight Contender
    "I don't worry about my opponent. I fight my fight.
    "Experience counts. I've been here before. I'm beyond ready.
    "I've never been knocked out before. It's going to be an action-packed fight.
    "I'm one win away from the world title. I'm focused.
    "It's all about getting the W.
    "I'm good for another few years. I'm still young and hungry."
    LANELL BELLOWS, Super Middleweight Prospect
    "It's just another day at the office. We do what we have to do.
    "I'm working harder now. What happened yesterday is yesterday.
    "I always strive to push myself further.
    "He has to be fast enough to hit me. No mater how big or small.
    "Expect a hungry man. Nothing but the very best.
    "If I touch you there's a chance you may be going down.
    ANDREW TABITI, Undefeated Cruiserweight Prospect
    "Never give up. I didn't think I would make it so that's all I have to say.
    "It doesn't stop here. I'm trying to get to the next level."

    Yet he's the best ever and refuses to fight those other champions around him. 18 years and we haven't seen the best of him... but wait a short while and we will see the last of him.. For his legacy to still live on he needs to fight those other champions, so he isn't remembered for making the most $, but can truly be acknowledged as the best ever.

    Seldom in the history of boxing have the "best ever" fought the truthfully other best ever of his era. Lil' Floyd is among many greats in doing what he is doing. The one that quickly keep coming to my mind is the late, great Sugar Ray Robinson. He didn't step up and fight the best around. But he's often called the greatest pug to ever live by many earwitnesses and film eyewitnesses.

    No matter how you shake it or make it, Lil' Floyd is going down in the annals of boxing as one of the greatest ever. He is a prizefighter, not pridefighter, fanfighter or the likes. Making fans and critics happy is the last thing he wants to do on his list of things to do just above being sick or dead. Holla!

    It's one thing to dance around your opponents inside the ring, but I will never accept it if it's done outside of the ring. Whether or not people have done it in the past makes it no better or right for someone to do it in the present or future.

    We have one voice, and one mind so there's not much we can do to change the views of the many who live in our era unless we get in the limelight. But for the billions that follow us in future generations, opportunities are there to show them a different path. When you are in a position to do that and you simply do not it's not agreeable with me.

    At the end of the day, RG until he fights the one or two other guys close to or on par with him... I won't offer him recognition as the best ever. But you're right, what does that matter to him? When I was a sportsman, it didn't matter to me who thought what of me, so long as I knew in myself that I was the best and I acted accordingly. My problem is that Floyd does the first part... but not the latter.

    I read you loud and clear. But there will always be Floyds, Jacks, Joes and a lot hoes. Hehehe! And they ain't gonna get down never and no how [sic] with danger to comfort fans or critics. Holla!

    "Floyd Mayweather did it again. He picked the most dangerous opponent he could have.

    WOW are they blowing smoke up everyone's ***


    And why the hell is J'leon talking? what has he ever done? He is not worthy of a quote.

    Lol that was funny, no he's not worthy of quotes.

    To be fair, none of those guys were available. GGG is exclusive to HBO and so is Sergio Martinez. GGG has bigger fish to fry, anyway, literally speaking.

    I actually remember when Williams was in a position to inch closer to that shot but he messed around and got beat by Carlos Quintana. By the time he had avenged that loss, the ship had sailed. Floyd was on to PPV.

    Like Lou DiBella says, sometimes guys just don't intersect. Maidana was the most dangerous of the ones who were available in his weight class.

    Floyd is just kinda too polished for the rest of those dudes.

    Interesting with Vernon, was there talk of them fighting at some point? Maybe I'm wrong but I remember Floyd fighting at lightweight during the time Vernon was beating Shane and getting beat up by Mayorga.

    Would've been an interesting fight at 147!

    18yrs & better than ever right now, when everybody from his generation has either retired, died, or is a shell of themselves he's still at the top of the game....


    People underestimate how smart the man is in the ring, he pretty much enters every fight as the older man, the smaller man, or the one with the least punching power, and the most boxing miles on the odometer but his Conditioning & Ring IQ picks up where his physical gifts don't...

    Agreed, though I don't think his physical gifts have eroded much, if at all. He's very genetically gifted and will probably be fast into his fifties.
